Brad Pitt Eyes TIGER with Darren Aronofsky

Brad Pitt Eyes TIGER with Darren Aronofsky

Brad Pitt will star in and produce the adventure thriller, The Tiger, with Darren Aronofsky directing.

Variety reports the story “takes place on the Siberian plain, where human development is encroaching on the tigers’ habitat — and one tiger turns on the intruders. With townspeople being tracked and hunted with an almost supernatural power, a conservationist game warden must face down the tiger. It is a fight that only one of them can win.”

The Tiger, which will be produced by Brad‘s production company Plan B and Darren‘s Protozoa Pictures, is based on a nonfiction book by John Vaillant called “The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival,” out August.

    It’s so unfair to put anyone’s picture directly next to Brad Pitt’s. Especially that guy, whoever he is. I didn’t bother reading the story.

    Did Brad cut his beard off for Mother’s Day? he looks sooooo…… HOT !!!

  • HELLO!

    WOW, sounds really interesting. I really like this director A LOT.

    Way to go Brad. Keep doing those interesting, non-formulaic movies! I always like to see your films for that reason alone.

  • t.m.delafonda

    HELLOOOOOOOOOOO, Brad!!!!! He is hzzzott!!!!! I love how his life has become so full of accomplishment after accomplishment. Say what you like about him and his personal life, but, you can not deny that he has accomplished more in the past five plus years than he did during his early career and prior relationship(s). He has become a more productive and happier man since he and Angelina became a couple. NOW….1…2…3…..Here come the haters to denigrate him. his life, his love, and everything else they don’t have.

  • sab

    I love Brad’s choices of films so diverse.

  • OT

    I just posted on JJs homepage where he has a new thread about Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe.. Ryan says they are friends, whatever…..

    Question, obviously these tow have been communicating and in each others lives since their divorce, even while being with other people. There has been plenty of opportunity for tabs to creat all kinds of bullsht stories about them getting back together, them sending each other secret messages, Abbie of Jake throwing fits over supposed secret meetings,….You all know what I’m getting at…….How come with them, the golden couple 2.0 did ‘t get that treatment all those years but Brad and Angelina and you know who are constantly in the tabs with the ridiculous unbelievable stories when there isn’t even even a atom or reality to them? Now Ryan says he is friends with his ex which is great especially because they have children, are the tabs gonna fan the flames every week about the golden girl america’s sweetheart (another one!) with gusing stories about the new love between them? Honestly……The tabs suck BIG TIME They are also late because them being friends is kinda news, isn’t it?

  • XIII

    I wanna read this book . . .

  • um

    Brad looks good in this picture. Good for hijm as he continues to transition into a mega producer.

    His IMDB page pictures needs to change. It’s from IB I think but he looks like Robin Thicke on there.

  • tessa

    Good foor You Brad!!! Starring and producing this movie. That’s wonderful. I will be there wouldn’t miss it for the world. Luv my Brad. Can’t wait.

  • wow

    Brad and Plan B are working on so many projects. Great.

  • Sofia

    I like Darren Aronofsky and I LOVE Brad!!. Great I hope the work good together!


    Brad Pitt, Darren Aronofsky eye ‘Tiger’
    Adventure thriller set up at Focus Features

    Brad Pitt and Darren Aronofsky are teaming up in the wild.

    The thesp and director have set up the adventure thriller “The Tiger” at Focus Features and have tapped Guillermo Arriaga to pen the script.

    Project, which is based on an upcoming nonfiction book by John Vaillant, takes place on the Siberian plain, where human development is encroaching on the tigers’ habitat — and one tiger turns on the intruders. With townspeople being tracked and hunted with an almost supernatural power, a conservationist game warden must face down the tiger. It is a fight that only one of them can win.

    “The Tiger,” which will be produced by Pitt’s Plan B and Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures, is being developed as a potential starring vehicle for Pitt.

    Project marks a reteaming for Pitt and Arriaga, who worked together on the multi-arc drama “Babel.” Pitt and Aronofsky have long flirted with making a pic together. The pair were previously attached to “The Fighter” before both dropped out, and Pitt nearly starred in Aronofsky’s “The Fountain,” but he eventually abandoned that project.

    Vaillant’s “The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival” will be published by Knopf in August.

    “This is the first time I have adapted a screenplay, since I have previously only written original screenplays,” said Arriaga, who previously worked with Focus on the drama “21 Grams.” “I chose to adapt this story, first, because I have a profound love for the outdoors and the intense tension between man and nature which the book reflects; and, second, because of the great privilege of working with such accomplished filmmakers as Darren Aronofsky, Brad Pitt, and James Schamus.”

    Producers on the pic will be Protozoa’s Mark Heyman, Ari Handel and Aronofsky; and Plan B’s Jeremy Kleiner, Dede Gardner and Mr. Pitt.

    Deal is part of a multi-year filmmaking partnership between Random House Films and Focus. Knopf is a division of Random House.

    Pitt and Aronofsky are repped by CAA. Arriaga is handled by UTA.

  • AJBP Fan

    I agree with the poster above (#7) Brad has come a longggg way and his accomplishments are just one after another. Superb. . All of this happened after the split with his ex where he himself said he was sitting on his butt doing zilch. I forget Brad’statement but something about sitting around smoking too much going to end up looking like a donut. LOL I beleive somebody here must know the quote Brad made about his past donut deadend life. What matters now is Brad is extremely happy with Angie and his kids . It just seems everything he touches turns to gold. It pays to get out of an unhappy marriage. Brad did and the sun came shining thru.
    I luv Brad and Angie together as a couple. They make beautiful music together in every way.

  • Isabella

    I am glad I am not the only one thinks Brad looks like Robin Thicke with mustache.

  • Kirsten

    Brad is so versatile. Just like Angie.

  • bevvie

    Brad Pitt the Mega Producer. HUH! Who would of thought and so fast too. Yayyyy for Mr. Pitt. I can’t wait to see this movie. Top another one up for Brad.

  • BP Lovah

    What a sweetiepie. I love Brad and wish him the very best . I would like to read that book first too before i see the movie.

  • teri

    I love Brad, anything with him in it I’ll be seeing.

  • True

    Men be careful what you wish for! Brad married the most beautiful woman alive and yet he looks like he’s aged 20 years with the most miserable expression. Brad looks like he gets punched in the face by Angie on a daily basis. Sad ending to a once sexy star…

  • teri

    I love Brad just the way he is! You simply don’t mess with perfection.

  • Jeff

    Sounds like a good film. I’ll see it with some of my buddies. I like the sounds of a survival and vengenge movie with a tiger. Wonder if its R rated? If not maybe his older kids would like it too.

  • love them

    Brad has 20 projects in development. Love him, he is so wonderful.

  • lylian

    Right now, I feel ANGRY and I’m gonna rant. Skip if you don’t want to read the rant:-)
    What struck me about the article was again the double standards between men and women in the entertainment reporting workd.
    If it had been Angelina (or for that matter Halle or Hilary or Charlize or any number of other well known female celebrities) who were on her single self in a Venice Hotel with her friends watching reshoots or whatever you call it and then playing guitar till 3.00am, the tablies will be screaming out – Alchohol and drug consuming sexual orgies. Angelina is a BAD mother. Charlize is a drowning her sorrows after the split. HIlary is SNOOTY. etc etc.
    Instead, it is Johnny Depp and it’s about how close he is his friends on the shoot. Not a word about how his kids are NOT seeing him for days at a time now that Vanessa is shooting a movie elsewhere. Not a word about how he is a BAD DAD who has no energy left when he does see his kids over the weekend because he didn’t get enough sleep and is burning the candle on both ends. This given Johnny’s early consumption of DRUGS, and mixing with Druggie company which led to the death of one of his friends – River Phoenix.
    Even when Brad was out partying with his mates during IB filming, attracted a semi indulgent smile from the “reporters”. It was the LOSIES on the JP threads who were screaming that he was a pot addled alcoholic.
    I really don’t think this double standard is reserved for Angelina alone though she probably bears the brunt of the double standards because of who she is – the woman with EVERYTHING a woman could possibly want, (except may be, the freedom to sit in a cafe, undisturbed and watch the world go by.) Its a double standard by men and women about women.
    I remember more than 20 years ago when I first joined one of the then Big 8 accounting firms in Melbourne. In Friday night office functions, the males partners could get a drunk as skunks and paw their equally drunk secretaries (yes they did paw!!). The male newbies (1st or 2nd year graduates) could get as drunk as a skunk and swear and generally be men behaving badly. Come Monday morning, the water cooler chatter would be about what a good fun mate this chap or that guy had been, WITH nary a word of disapproval.
    But if you are a woman and behaved the same way, then heaven help you, your credibility is shot on Monday morning and you are a SLVT.
    This double standard continues to exist in our society, I see it every day. I tolerate it. But right now, today, I just wanna FEEL THE ANGER.

  • eliott

    Pitt and Aronofsky should make a brilliant film. I’ll watch anything Pitt is in and Aronofsky has a unique style.

  • awwwwww

    Brad rocks.

  • So Judgemental

    This sounds exactly like The Ghost and the Darkness. That was an awesome movie.

    I could picture Brad in this role.

    It will suck though if he backs out and leaves this guy hanging a third time though!

  • Sarah

    Just reading the synopsis put me to sleep.

  • Brad Is The Dad

    Brad is really doing excellent since he and the witch split up 100 yrs ago.
    Nahh on a more serious note yall know the saying ‘ Behind every successful man is a good woman. And in this case that good women is the one and only Angelina Jolie. YAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    What a fantastic couple they are.:)
    I was reading an old article the ex did with Shirley Maclean right after the movie Rumor has it’ So back in 2005 or 06 and the coattailer made a comment about how she couldn’t wait for Brad and Angie to break up . LOL i mean she was serious about it going to happen just like how the trolls are still hoping ..and lying about it poor desperate fools.
    What can i say but.. NANNY NANNY BOO BOO to the ex Lonely one….Love it! lol

  • busted


    Good then we won’t here from you again.

  • Fiona

    He is gross and bloated

  • busted

    @love them:

    oops meant hear.

    see even we fans get the stupids when responding to these idiots.

    I better stop..

  • busted

    Regarding all these movies..Brad has said that he does not stack his movies..So I doubt he is planning on starring in all the films he has been attached to..JUST like Angie.

  • mp3

    he has one eye more open than the another

  • old lady

    A movie that has depth in it. Can’t wait to see it. Obviously BP wants to do quality movies now. Thanks JJ for the news and God bless everybody.

  • Mouse

    Brad can’t act and he is losing his looks. I fell asleep 12 times trying to watch a DVD of The Assasination of Jesse James. I was a big fan
    then so I had to buy it & watch it. Brad was okay in Benjamin Button when he was made to look like an old man. No chemistry between Cate and Brad in that film at all.

  • ally

    I loves me some Brad. I have been a fan since Thelma and Louise so can’t wait to see this one.

  • YEP

    Brad and Angelina work with great directors on great quality films unlike his ex wife’s dumb rom coms.

  • Tina

    Sounds good on paper.

  • Ellery

    I thought Jesse James was excellent and it was too bad they did not market it properly so it would have been advertised.. It was intense and Brad actually became Jesse James the best Jesse James film to date
    I think it would of done really well in theaters but oh well we purchased it just like everybody else.
    The CCOBB is a classic obviously that’s why Brad Pitt was nominated for best actor for that particular film.
    Brad Pitt is doing his best work ever or he would not have all of these projects on the go.
    BAR was so funny another one i loved.
    Brad has done so well he could retire now and live happily ever after.
    But like alot of directors and actors his best work is coming out as he ages. What more can i say. I love Brad and wouldn’t miss his movies.
    MAUHH To My Brad.
